Birthday Poppet

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I didn't get to post anything yesterday, I coloured this cute little image up but it didn't make it onto a card until this morning.
Last year I ordered from Cuddly Buddly Crafts and they sent me a cute stamp set free with my order, it is still available on their website here. I put it in my 'to be used' box and promptly forgot all about it until I found it again the other day, it's such a sweet image too as is the other one that comes with it.

The papers and sentiment stamp used were magazine freebies and I just added some punched flowers and tiny pearls from my stash. It's a smallish card - 5".

Off to do some catching up on your lovely blogs now,
Thanks for looking,

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Wedding Fever

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would pop back to show you a wedding card for a recent order, I have been asked for a few wedding ones so that's what I will be doing this morning I think.

This card is made using an embossing folder magazine freebie and Joanna Sheen Bride and Groom dies, I coated the Bride die-cut with Wink of Stella and then used tiny pearls to highlight some of the small flowers on the embossed pattern and on the dress. Sentiment is from a CB stamp set..

That's all for now, be back soon,

Birthday Butterfly

Hi Everyone,

I have a little scalloped birthday card to show you today, I found some pretty card in my snippets box that I had embossed a few years ago to try out a freebie folder that came with one of the magazines. I had forgotten all about the folder until I came across this piece of card, I made a very quick and simple card as you can see...

I just cut a circle out of the embossed piece and matted onto a scalloped circle, the butterfly is made using my CB die and just popped up in the centre of the panel using silicone glue. I also went over the butterfly with Wink of Stella but it doesn't really show up in the pic. Very sparkly in RL though.
Just matted and layered with more snippets onto a little 5" scalloped card blank and added a few pearls. The sentiment is CB from the Many mini messages set.

As this card is made using entirely snippets from my bit box I would like to pop over for my first ever visit to Di and the Playground - Pixie's Crafty Workshop
I have wanted to enter this challenge for a long time so I hope there is room left in the sandpit ;) and judging by the amount of snippets I have (I keep even the tiniest piece of card and patterned paper as you never know when it might come in handy for a tiny flower or butterfly lol) I will be making frequent visits from now on !

Thats all for now, thanks for looking,

Karate Sammy

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, I have another couple of my 'flat' cards to show you today.
Both DigiStamp Boutique images and both coloured with Promarkers and Illustrators, the first one is Karate Sammy.....

As you can see super simple, papers from my bargain Works paper pad and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted which I embossed with Wow Opaque White embossing powder. I also used Glossy Accents on his eyes. I love this image I think he is really cute !

My next image is my favourite DSB character... Alf ! This one is called 'Alf cooling off'

As I needed to keep the card flat anyway I decided to print him out a bit larger along with sentiment so he was the focal point on the card, just matting him onto black card. The little flag of patterned paper wasn't planned originally but I decided it needed something in that corner just to balance it out. I think that's partly because of my need to add embellishments lol, although I must admit I have been enjoying making some more CAS cards for a change.

That's all for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend !

Beautiful Blooms - Emma

Hi Everyone,

Thank goodness it was a bit cooler today with a lovely breeze so I managed to get quite a bit done for a change.

My card today is using a Tiddly Inks image 'Beautiful Blooms - Emma'

I have used a Kraft card blank (Hobbycraft) and more of that lovely freebie paper again which I can't seem to stop using at the moment, I also used it to die cut my flower from too. The flower die is Die'sire and the sentiment is from a CB set, I really love the font. Flower trim and pearls were from ebay.

I would like to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Patterned Paper)

That's all for now, back soon

Vintage Bicycle

Hi Everyone,

Well 3 days in a row....woohoo, I'm really enjoying having something to show you and I have even been managing to catch up on some commenting on your lovely blogs too.

I was asked to make an assortment of 'flat' cards for my box at my friend's slimming club, the card I am sharing today is one of those. I have quite a few more to show you over the next few weeks but I will mix them up with some more embellished ones so it doesn't become samey (I dont think thats even a word is it Lol)

So on this card I used my Joanna Sheen Vintage Bicycle

I used paper from Dovecraft 'Back to Basics' pad, Xcut punch for the little butterflies and a Woodware punch for the tiny flowers. I added teeny pearls to the flowers and butterflies.
The sentiment is from a CB set - Sugar and Spice and you can't tell from the pic but I embossed the sentiment with clear powder.

Be back soon and thank you for looking and your lovely comments,

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Birthday Lola

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine, I must admit I have been suffering a little its a bit too hot for me...the upside to that is that means I have been taking refuge in my craft room which is probably the coolest room in my house so I have a few cards ready to blog !

The card I'm sharing today is using a Pink Petticoat (now back and renamed The Lovely Studio) image,

 I have coloured her with my Promarkers and Illustrator pens and used some lovely Trimcraft papers that were a magazine freebie recently. The little snippet of pink flowery paper was from a 12 x 12 pad I got from The Works years ago when I first started cardmaking.

I am entering this card into Challenge #121 at In the Pink today, I have been wanting to start entering some challenges for a long time now but being a complete tech numpty Lol I couldn't figure out how to do it but thanks to the lovely Christine who talked me through it I have finally managed it.
Thank you so much Christine !

Be back soon, thank you for looking today,

Hugs, Kaz xx
